Pennsylvania Velvet Buck


Going into the opening day of Pennsylvania’s 2016 archery season, my mind was full of hope and optimism. After hunting all last season and not getting a chance to let an arrow fly, I was more then ready. In the morning I saw a few deer but no opportunities. That evening was quite the opposite. While at full draw waiting for a small 5 pointer to turn and give me a shot (which felt like forever) I heard something to my right. Both of the smaller bucks that were in front of me stopped and looked towards where I heard the noise coming from. I looked to my right and saw this buck coming my way. Needless to say I shifted my self and took aim at this full velvet 9 point. I stopped him as he entered my one shooting lane at 20 yards, put it on his vitals and let it rip. After trailing him for a long distance we lost blood and decided to come back the next morning. That next morning I was able to find my buck not far from where we stopped. Sure enough he took a hard turn on us and died not far from where we lost blood. This was one cool way to break in my brand new Bowtech BT-X 31. I was shooting a Black Eagle Arrows Spartan (new for 2016) tipped with a QAD Exodus broadhead.
